"Better than the original Waves 2"

Waldorf PPG Wave 2.V was developed by Steinberg and is compatible with MAC or Windows. It will work differently on a Windows computer than it doesn't on a Mac though. In my experiences on a Windows computer it works more “fluid” like and on a Mac there are some small bugs. I am not sure if they have every updated those bugs yet either. So MAC users beware. The original Wave 2 was realest almost 30 years ago, Steinberg has brought it back to live with this plug in.


It was easy to install, and it ran perfect on my XP and Vista Machines, but not too well on MAC. There are many bugs that I have seen and dealt with while running it on a MAC. So I don’t even use it on there any more, working around those bugs and dealing with them are a headache.


The sounds are the best thing about this plug in, they have managed to take some of the older sounds from the original Wave 2 and bring it to the computer music world but with a twist. Also its very affordable, I have been using this for almost 8 year now. The Waldorf PPG Wave 2. Has some very unique filters and effects that are very CPU light, you can go crazy with the effects and it wont effect your systems performance at all (on Windows). Now on a MAC that’s a different story. They have constructed this VST to highly resemble the look of the original Wave 2 don’t to every color and button. Difference is, the Wave 2 was not affordable at all for the average person when it first came out, you weren’t able to get it unless you had a huge budget. The Waldorf PPG Wave 2, is better than the original and its cheaper. You will love the quality of sound, I am extremely happy to say that I purchased this 8 years ago and I am still using it to this day. I would make the same choice all over again if I needed to.
